RIO RANCHO, N.M. — For many people, one of the most important aspects of Christmas and the holiday season is coming together with family or with people who share their faith.
Rio Ranchoans seem to have no shortage of special Christmas traditions to help them celebrate. They can be simple activities with family, a special feeling after a church service, the time spent unwinding after the hustle to pick out the perfect gift or just the smell of a batch of cookies baking.
Kelsey Bruxvoort, an employee at Rio Grande Gracious Retirement Living, said her favorite tradition is playing Cranium, a board game where players have to know trivia and also demonstrate their artistic abilities. She said her family plays the game every year after opening presents.
